Would You Friend House Energy on Facebook? Or Poke Them?

February 9, 2011

Communicating with congressional committees may be getting easier. Or not. Many House and Senate panels now have Facebook and Twitter accounts. But, OMG, does that make them more social?

The good news is that you can easily find the Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr accounts of committees, federal agencies, and others on the Government & Social Media Wiki. As in the real world, however, the existence of these channels may not necessarily mean they carry any substantial information. Most useful may be the list of links to committee RSS feeds.
